Having to be in and around Vancouver Airport for a meeting, it was recommended that I stay at the Fairmont Hotel at the terminal. I've never really liked staying at airport hotels due to noise, airport congestion, and lack of amenities, but in this case all these concerns are eliminated since the hotel is located outside the hubbub of the airport, within the terminal are amenities such as convenience stores, liquor stores, pharmacy, and other types of businesses, a first-class restaurant with 4 star service and food. The room was excellent and the views of the airport beautiful as well as the local mountain ranges. Lastly, the bed turndown comes with a plate of chocolate covered strawberries and butter cookies shaped like planes. What a treat!! The only issue I had was the high expense for wifi service and the cab service in the lower level of the terminal versus outside the hotel lobby.
Other than those two items this is an outstanding hotel, especially since I can roll out of bed and check in within minutes of checking out!
